Damion James twice underwent surgery on his right foot within his first two NBA seasons, but he’s felt fully healthy and has helped lead the Miami Heat’s summer league team with averages of about 10 points and five rebounds. James hasn’t discussed a training camp or regular season deal with the Heat, a league source told RealGM. Still, James, 25, knows the opportunity to play with them this month might have increased his value. “Everybody knows I belong in the league,” James told RealGM on Saturday. “I’m completely, 100 percent healthy. It’s been a great experience for me. I really look up to the Miami Heat and I really appreciate them for letting me come and be a part of their organization. I just want to show them that I can play, show them that I can belong here. “I broke my foot and now my foot is 100 percent, ready to go.” RealGM
